Few days back we came across an Unknown Hacker who stated that he is working doe the Unlock for the iPhone 4 on new baseband that is 4.11.08. The name of that hacker is @hamzah_akram. Hamzah Akram is from U.A.E- Abu Dhabi. No more information has been found about him. He is reportedly working on the Unlock for iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1 Baseband, 4.11.08. The Unlock on which he is working is called React0r.
At first when we heard about this React0r thing, we thought this as a bogus like all the previous jailbreaks/Unlocks said to be releasing for new basebands. So, today we came across a new blog post that mentioned about this Unlock and we thought to share this information with you.
What is react0r & how does it work?
React0r is a new unlock tool for 04.11.08 baseband. React0r works by erasing 04.11.08 baseband and flashing iOS firmware with an older baseband version like 04.10.01. After flashing the older baseband, you can use Gevey sim to unlock your iPhone 4. So, if you’ve accidentally updated to iOS 5 or have bought a new iPhone 4 with iOS 5 pre-installed, there seems to be some hope for an unlock.
Till now we cannot say if the above method is possible or not because unlock for iPhone 4 didn’t came from last one year.
Hamzah is said to be working on this Unlock for past two months. He started the work in October/ November and now he has made some progress. He Tweeted in the first week on Jan 2012 that:
Dear guys! The up coming nice thing for all of you is called #react0r ! #4.11.08 …. No donation required! this will end the #4.11.08 age!.
The Tweet in the New Year might have brought new hopes another great hope by this unknown hacker regarding the Unlock for iPhone. The Unlock seemed to be a total scam until unless he came up with some proof and giving out his iPhone 4 Model Number and some photos of the Unlock in action.
He showed a picture of his iPhone locked on AT&T running on Jordan network on the new baseband 4.11.08. The model Number is MC318LL that is locked on AT&T’s Network.
We would suggest to wait for furthure confirmation on this React0r unlock because we have seen many bogus people in past. We don’t want our readers to be scammed or played with their feelings. We will update you as soon as we hear anything new or any progress about this unlock. We really hope that this doesn’t come out as bogus. If this comes out to be real, that would be pretty good.
Thanks to Abhir for the heads up.
